New Philosophy Podcast on Love and Happiness

Jennifer Frey, assistant professor of philosophy at the University of South Carolina, has launched a new podcast on love and happiness called Sacred and Profane Love.

The podcast features conversations between Professor Frey and other philosophers, as well as literary critics, artists, and theologians, and is focused on depictions of love and happiness in philosophy, literature, poetry, and film. It is part of the “Virtue, Happiness, and Meaning of Life” project, led by Professor Frey and Candace Vogler (University of Chicago), and funded by the John Templeton Foundation.

The first episode is a discussion of love, charity, grace, divinity, and Catholicism, centered around the works of Flannery O’Connor and Thomas Aquinas, with Thomas Joseph White, a Catholic priest and associate professor of theology at the Dominican House of Studies.

The guests on upcoming episodes include philosophers David McPherson (Creighton), Talbot Brewer (Virginia), and Nancy Snow (Oklahoma).
